    1. Please check your email and spam folders! My email software says it was sent to you last month (it’s in the welcome email).

  1. We did a cover crop of mustard one winter, and harvested leaves off it to cook for a couple of.months before we turned it under. Multitasking veg!

      1. Yes, you can do lettuce and cukes if they have some shade during the hottest parts of the day. Full sun all day long will cook them in the ground! Onions will be a lot happier if you plant them in January.
